  • Notes 
    • Albert Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha was baptised with the name of Franz August Karl Albert Emanuel von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha.
      He gained the title of Herzog von Sachsen (styled as Duke of Saxony). He gained the title of Prinz von Sachsen-Coburg und Gotha (styled as Prince of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha) in 1821. He was invested as a Knight Order of the Garter (K.G.) on 16 December 1839.
      He gained the title of HRH Prince Albert of the United Kingdom on 6 February 1840.
      He gained the title of Prince Consort Albert of the United Kingdom (styled as HRH The Prince Consort) on 26 June 1857.
      After a careful domestic education the Prince along with his elder brother studied at Brussels and Bonn where in addition to the sciences connected to state-craft he devoted himself with ardour to natural history and chemistry and displayed a great taste for the fine arts especially painting and music. Gifted with a handsome figure he attained expertness in all knightly exercises. Queen Victoria and he met first in 1836 and fell in love like ordinary mortals though the marriage had long been projected by King Leopold and Baron Stockmar. The title of Consort of Her Most Gracious Majesty was formally confered in 1842 and that of Prince Consort in 1857. He abstained with prudence and tact from undue meddling with state affairs whilst opening for himself an influential sphere of action in the encouragement and promotion of science and art. The Exhibition of 1851 owed much to him. He held strongly that Prussia should be supreme in Germany.
